Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Thursday mooted the idea of developing a specific colour pattern for all buildings in the State’s capital town, Guwahati to lend a distinct identity.
CM Sonowal suggested the idea of a proper study and analysis to help find uniformity in colour for all the buildings in the city. This according to him will give the state capital a distinct identity so that the image remains imprinted in the minds of visitors.
Sonowal even went on to urge the Public Works Department (PWD) Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and Guwahati Development Department (GDD) Minister Siddhartha Bhattacharya to deliberate on the suggestion. After the final deliberation, a consensus can be evolved.
The Chief Minister suggested this while he was speaking during the inauguration of the newly constructed flyover connection RG Baruah Road with Bishnu Rabha Flyover at Ganeshguri Chariali in the city.
The PWD has constructed a 425.50-meter long flyover under the State-owned Priority Development Fund for the year 2018-19 with a financial outlay of Rs. 58.74 crore. Meanwhile, the foundation of the flyover was laid on March 6, 2019, with a completion period of 30 months, however, it was completed within 19 months.
The CM even congratulated the PWD for setting a record in terms of completion of the flyover. He even termed this as an example of good governance in the State. The minister went on to appreciate Sarma for his leadership in the swift execution of the project.
PWD Minister Sarma in his speech said that a total of 16 flyovers are currently under construction in different parts of the State. This includes the flyovers at the supermarket and Maligaon in the city.
